Although complete details are not available, speedonthewater.com has confirmed that Art McMahan's 388 Skater flipped coming back from today's Cheeseburger in Paradise lunch during the Pirates of Lanier Poker Run. Search and rescue teams are on the scene.

I moved this to a new thread vs. being on one of the picture threads.

Keep the occupants in your thoughts and prayers.

from another site:

Complete details are not available at this time but PowerBoat Nation is live at Lake Lanier and we can confirm a catamaran belonging to Art McMahan was reported overturned. The initial reports are that 4 or 5 occupants were onboard and two bodies have been recovered. The Fire Dive Rescue Team is on scene working the incident. We will provide updates as accurate information becomes available. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their family and friends. More details will be posted as they become available.

Not good......

From a friend who was there, Art and his wife, and his good buddy Anthony Reese (Saddle Up) and his wife Tammy are all gone.

They were all Lake Cumberland boaters. I ran Poker runs with Anthony years ago when we both had 38 Fountains - way before Saddle Up. You would not find nicer more down to earth people than Anthony and Tammy - despite their obvious success. I am sick as can be. I am at a loss for words. God's speed.
